My husband and I stayed at Pelican Point Inn for a week in July when visiting family in the area. We found the accommodations to be a perfect location for walking to the beach, nearby restaurants, grocery and access to the local express ways. It is only 5-7 minutes to downtown Santa Cruz, which we visited several times. Our unit was cozy with a little sitting area, table, private bath and separate bedroom. Ann, the owner/manager and her staff were wonderful. This was our first time visiting, however Ann called several guests by name as though they were returning guests! We much prefer the E. Cliff Drive location to West Cliff which is too near the boardwalk congestion. The Inn, to our surprise, was located at the halfway point of the "Warf to Warf" race that week, in which our son-in-law was participating. We were delighted to find the San Jose State Alumni band across the street playing as the runners came by. As a matter of fact there were three other bands in close proximity. We walked over to listen to all of them. If you want a very clean, quaint family owned motel with walking distance to the beach and other amenities you can't beat Pelican Point Inn. We found out that Ann and her husband bought the property about nine years ago. They rehabbed the entire property and then some... turned an ugly duckling into a swan!
